My Background

I studied at One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in New York City for two years and was ordained by them as an Interfaith Minister. See my page on their website.

My Spiritual Background includes Quakerism as a child, followed by a spiritual journey in my 20s and 30’s (reading Eckhart Tolle, Neal Donald Walsh, Tich Nat Hanh, and many others) and landing me today at Unity of New York where I serve as a Prayer Chaplain and where I served on the Board of Trustees for 7 years, including 2 as President.  I am also versed in, and very comfortable with, the 12 Steps.

Additional Information

Wedding Officiant - Registered in NYC.. I meet with couples to design a tailor-made ceremony that respects their unique spirituality. I love to co-create a perfect ceremony, blending cultures and traditions, or making something completely unique for those who are spiritual but have no specific faith tradition. 


Baby Blessings  - I love working with parents to create a perfect naming ceremony and baby blessing. I have access to many options and can make suggestions that fit your needs. And I will tailor the ceremony to your baby and her or his name. Plus, I'll keep it brief enough for the baby! 

 
Speaking - I've spoken at Unity of New York,  Unity of Long Island, the New Thought Spiritual Center of Long Island, and Unity of Montclair. I gave the Keynote talk at Unity of New York’s World Day of Prayer in September, 2017.   I’ve taught classes and led Town Halls and hosted the service at Unity of New York many times (average attendance 350).


Professional Performer & Writer
I’m a proud member of Actors’ Equity and the Screen Actors Guild, and I’ve performed in many plays and films. I also write songs and am a member of the BMI Musical Theater Workshop. I sing (as a tenor) and have written upbeat songs for the Buddha and Jesus, which I’ve performed at Unity of New York and in Connecticut. (See my songs and my singing at www.RobertYarnall.com )
